|Caring for Critters|
|Saturday, 05 December 2009 15:37|
Since September 2012 have had a new little orphaned wombat we call Munchkin (so known because she eats every waking hour) - she is a 10 month old from the Tasman Peninsula where her mum was killed by a car. Since the accident she has been raised from a tiny pinky by a wonderful carer in Hobart. We hope to release her in March 2013.
Throughout 2010 we raised two orphaned wombats: Chester, who was born around April 2009, and Pepi, who was born around July 2009. They have both now been successfuly reared and released back into the wild, and we occasionally see them wandering through to graze or have a drink at dusk.
The terms of our carer registration do not allow us to show them to guests, but to follow their progress please have a look at Chester's blog: Chester's Blog
